Paatal Lok, featuring Jaideep Ahlawat, Neeraj Kabi and Abhishek Banerjee in the lead roles, released on Friday on Amazon Prime Video. The show was awaited since the trailer release, and within a day, netizens have been praising the show on twitter.
Bankrolled by Anushka Sharma's Clean Slate Filmz, Paatal Lok has been claimed by many as Amazon's answer to Netflix's crime drama Scared Games. The show follows Jaideep Ahlawat as a Delhi cop, who is handed a case with four suspects charged of conspiring to assassinate a prime time journalist. The crime thriller promises to dive into the ancient and mythological realms, that still exist in today's time.
Twitterati have been recommending the show as a must-watch, some have even called it engaging and gripping. Performances have also been praised by many, with one even saying that Jaideep Ahlawat runs the show on his shoulder. Take a look at these tweets before watching the show on Amazon Prime Video.
